“Ripple”

Batelle-Darby.7.31.15

 

 

Part 1.
“If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung
Would you hear my voice come through the music
Would you hold it near as if it were your own?”
“Ripple”- The Grateful Dead
Some voices become our own, without us even knowing; they creep into us and meld into our being. Some voices become our music; a melody we need to allow our sacrifices to make sense.
Part 2.
I don’t want to say goodbye, so forgive me for not saying hello
I’ll just sit quietly beside you
exchanging meaningful glances
Watching August clouds roll by
Forgive me, I cannot stay for long, but I’ll be with you forever
Understand me, I’ll give you strength and compassion
In return, please give me hope and resurrection
I don’t want to say goodbye, so forgive me for not saying hello
We can walk the path to nightfall
I’ll hold the light so you can see
Part 3.
So it’s said
Teach only love
As the ripples spread across the shallow waters
With each one, tales of forgiveness take life
Purple moths dance around the sunlit poppies
A display of undying love
Shown only to us
We inhale the moment and feel blessed
Teach only love, is the message
We hope that we do
We fear that we can’t
So it’s said
Time heals all wounds
I think it’s the ripples in the shallow water
Asking us to open up to the unknown before us
Purple moths dance around the sunlit poppies
Only a few remain until another summer rain
Cherish the sight, cherish the moment
It will be gone soon enough
Part 4.
I don’t want to say goodbye, so forgive me for not saying hello
I’ll just sit quietly beside you, watching the sunlit poppies glow
I don’t want to say goodbye, so I will stay with you forever
Love and Light, M
